Less Than Jake will be celebrating their 25th anniversary in Australia this October across five fun filled shows.

The Gainesville punks responsible for fashioning a generation’s suburban discontent, social isolation and ‘plastic cup politics’ into irresistibly tasty ska punk hooks have notched up more than 300 releases since their original formation in small town Florida, and are no strangers to Australian soil building a fiercely loyal local audience across their many tours.

They were last on our shores with their US contemporaries Reel Big Fish and locals The Bennies in 2015, drawing massive crowds to a quick succession of East Coast dates.

We never stopped touring or trying to be an active band

the band suggest of their success that has comfortably spanned two and a half decades. Less Than Jake have been self managed for more than five years and show no signs of easing their break neck touring pace that sees them routinely smash out in excess of 150 dates a year.

An excited drummer, Vinnie Fiorello comments;

We’ll be celebrating our 25th anniversary in Australia, and while Australian tours are always ragers, we will be bringing our full stage of antics along for the first time. Add a massive catalog of material to choose from and it’s almost an instant good time. We’re coming to your shores to party, live recklessly, have a few pies, nurse a few hangovers, and make our 25th anniversary tour one to remember (or not remember).

The band last released an EP titled ‘Sound The Alarm‘ back in February on Pure Noise Records.

Less Than Jake will be joined on these shows by legendary Australian quartet, Bodyjar, last seen on UNIFY Festival earlier in the year, and before that celebrating 15 years of their seminal album ‘How It Works’ on a massive run of packed rooms, things haven’t been quiet off the stage for the band with time spent in the studio recently, you can expect all the favourites, and no doubt a few new jams on this tour

Melbourne’s Foxtrot will round out this epic bill, armed with their 2016 belter ‘Habitats‘ they will get the party started in all cities.
